Abstract

Breast milk is an ideal source of nutrition for infants. However, the level of exclusive breastfeeding has not reached government targets. This might be affected by internal factors such as breastfeeding self-efficacy or external factors that may originate from the husband. The aim of this study was to identify the relationship between the husband’s knowledge and attitude about exclusive breastfeeding with breastfeeding self-efficacy in mothers with infants aged 0-6 months. This study used a correlation study design with a cross-sectional approach. The sample consisted of 85 mothers and their husbands who had infants aged 0-6 months through a purposive sampling technique in Puskesmas Pucang Sewu Surabaya. Data was taken using questionnaires and analyzed statistically using a Spearman Rank Correlation test. The results showed that there was a significant relationship between the husband’s knowledge and breastfeeding self-efficacy (p = 0.002 r = 0.338) and the husband’s attitude with breastfeeding self efficacy (p = 0.000 r = 0.723). The relationship between knowledge and breastfeeding self-efficacy was weak. It could be influenced by other factors such as education, occupation, age, and the mother’s breastfeeding experience. While the relationship between the husband’s attitude and breastfeeding self-efficacy was strong. This shows that the husband’s positive attitude will increase the level of breastfeeding self-efficacy.
